Hylands Teething Tablets RECALLED

This caught my eye because Little Brother has been teething constantly for the past 3 months.  Quite a few people I recommended I give these to him, but I just never got around to it…thankfully.  “The FDA notified consumers that Hyland’s Teething Tablets is being recalled because the tablets may pose a risk to children. The tablets are manufactured to contain a small amount of belladonna, a substance that can cause serious harm at larger doses. For such a product, it is important that the amount of belladonna be carefully controlled. FDA laboratory analysis has found that Hyland’s Teething Tablets contain inconsistent amounts of belladonna.FDA has received reports of serious adverse events in children taking this product that are consistent with belladonna toxicity. The FDA has also received reports of children who consumed more tablets than recommended, because the containers do not have child resistant caps.”

The FDA recommends that if you have Hylands teething tablets to discontinue use and throw the rest away.  The FDA also recommends that if you notice the symptoms of belladonna toxicity including: seizures, difficulty breathing, lethargy, excessive sleepiness, muscle weakness, skin flushing, constipation, difficulty urinating, or agitation after using Hyland’s Teething Tablets to contact a health care professional and report the side effects to the FDA’s MedWatch Safety Information and Adverse Event Reporting Program:

  1. I just wanted to say thanks for the follow. Yes, I cloth diaper but I haven't clothed diaperd my 17 month old as much as I did my almost 3 yr old. I dealt with stinkies so I quit for awhile but now I found a solution to the problem. I just think the reason for the success is because she wants to be like her bigger sissy. :)
  2. Thank you so much for the heads up about this! I had no idea until I read your post and we had a bottle of them in the bathroom. I haven't used them lately (thank goodness) but they are now in the trash. So scary!
